Officer Keith Crenshaw, 52, of the Eupora (Miss.) Police Department was killed Wednesday after laying down a spike strip to stop a car being pursued by law enforcement officers.

A Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesperson told WTVA the incident happened around 10 a.m. on Highway 82.

Authorities say the trooper was following a vehicle that matched the description of a car reported as possibly being involved in a robbery in Grenada. When other law enforcement officers attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver attempted to get away.

Officials say Crenshaw put down a spike strip on the highway and was hit by the car when the driver attempted to avoid the strip.

The vehicle hit a metal utility pole a short distance away, killing one of the passengers in the car.
